Stopped overnight and found all that I needed and more was here. I was impressed with the FREE 2GB of WiFi and the great range of SKY TV channels available. The room was clean, looking new as, and very quiet despite the motels being on the main drag into town. There was a wet floor shower area which was unusual... More

We came across this place quiet by accident, when our party of 4 adults were caught in a terrible storm. The host was VERY helpful in getting us a room at last minute and went on to try and help us with our trip ahead, due to this devastating storm. Can not recommend enough highly, rooms spotless and very roomy,... More

The service from hosts was excellent. Central location to town and tourist attractions. Room was very clean and great water pressure. Comfortable bed and pillows and warm room. We would definitely stay here again, if passing through. Worth it.

We found our week-end staying at the Gables Motor lodge most enjoyable. Rooms large a very clean and motel size ideal for four of us. The hosts Ian and Tui most helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. They found a hot water bottle when I asked for one for my husband.

We found this a great place to stay for a night en-route from Franz Josef to Kaikoura. Good sized comfortable room with a huge shower room. Very clean and well equipped. Great advice from the manager on interesting local sights.

The rooms are large and clean. Hosts were especially accommodating with dinner suggestions, reservations, information on activities. We made minimal use of the kitchen facility, but it was well-appointed. Great stopover between Fox Glacier and Abel Tasman.

Only stayed here one night as a stopover before crossing to the east coast. Our one bedroom unit was clean, tidy and very comfortable. Although on the main highway traffic noise was not a problem. The motel is a fair distance from the town centre but there were a couple of places close by to eat. The owner was very... More
